Jane Fonda, a Hollywood icon and activist, recently made a wild appearance on “The View” where she suggested that women seeking abortions shouldn’t abide by laws and could even resort to “murder” in order to maintain their ability to seek an elective abortion.
When the topic of abortion started, Fonda started by saying, “We have experienced many decades now of having agency over our body, of being able to determine when and how many children to have. We know what that feels like, we know what that’s done for our lives,” adding, “We’re not going back, I don’t care what the laws are. We’re not going back.”
Later in the discussion, Fonda was then asked what can be done other than protesting and marching in opposition to the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court.
Fonda would then reply by saying, “Well, I’ve thought of murder,” when asked by co-host Tomlin to repeat herself, Fonda once again said, “Murder.”
Fonda’s comments on “The View” regarding abortion laws and the suggestion of “murder” demonstrate a lack of respect for the sanctity of life. The pro-life movement recognizes the inherent value and worth of every human life, at every stage of development. Fonda’s remarks not only trivialize the gravity of taking a life but also discredit the efforts of those working tirelessly to promote life-affirming alternatives to abortion.
It is concerning that Fonda’s comments were met with laughter and applause from the liberal panel, as violence should never be glorified or encouraged, regardless of one’s political beliefs. Instead, we should be advocating for a culture that upholds the value of human life and empowers women to make informed and life-affirming choices.
As a society, we should work together to create a world where every woman feels supported and empowered to choose life for her unborn child. We must advocate for policies that protect the lives of both the mother and the child while also providing resources and support for families facing unplanned pregnancies.
Fonda’s comments were not only inappropriate but also harmful to the dignity of all human life. The pro-life movement recognizes that every person deserves respect and value, and we must work toward a society that upholds these principles. While Fonda may consider herself an activist, her comments reveal a narrow-minded perspective that fails to acknowledge the sanctity of life in its entirety.
